Question Time, The Nerd Daily

Question Time With Literature_Ever_After

literatureeverafter qt banner

Below are a list of questions that I decided to ask fellow book lover, Jess, about the types of books she likes, her television interests and favourite movie moments and dreams. 

***

Which genre of book are you most likely to be seen reading?
Definitely YA fantasy! I absolutely love losing myself in a mythical world. I especially love if there’s a certain government or culture to learn about the world I’m reading about. It makes me feel more involved!

 

Have you ever watched a movie adaptation of a book that was better than the book itself?
I would definitely have to say the maze runner. I was reluctant to see the films since I didn’t like the books, but the movie changed my mind about the franchise.

 

Name a TV show that is no longer on air, but you still love?
Tough one… there’s so many I love, but I think I’m going to have to go with the Vicar Of Dibley. A true British classic!

 

Name your favourite book, TV show & Movie. Now, if you could be your own character in one of those, which would one would you choose?
My favourite book is probably A Court of Mist and Fury, my favourite movie is either breakfast at Tiffany’s or Disney’s Atlantis and my favourite TV show has got to be Brooklyn nine nine! Out of all of them, I would want to be in Disney’s Atlantis! I would be on the team searching with Milo for the lost city.

 

What is your preferred reading style: books, e-books, audio books etc?
I will always pick books! But at work, I do listen to audio books since I usually sit at my desk doing work.

 

What are three fandoms which you are a part of?
I never get into fandoms! I don’t know why but I’ve never felt a pull to any set groups. I love so many books it’s hard to pour my heart into one fandom!

 

If you could direct your own movie, what would it be about?
Definitely a fantasy about a bad ass woman looking to save her people.

 

How do you get yourself out of reading slumps?
I actually wrote a whole article about this on TheNerdDaily.com! But my favourite way is to watch booktube! Their perkiness just makes me want to pick up all the books!!!!

 

Which TV shows would you recommend to others?
Hmmm… probably absolutely fabulous! It’s so funny and is still hilarious today!

 

Where is your favourite place to read?
A sofa. If I read in my bed I tend to fall asleep quickly! I’m always tired. 


And that is the end of another Question Time! Thank you once again to Jess for her participation. If you are interested in reading any of her published work for The Nerd Daily then feel free to click on the link below to be directed to her profile:

Day Five: Hook ’Em with a Quote

quote.PNG

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?” 

 

This quote taken from the novel Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K Rowling and spoken by Michael Gambon in his portrayal of Albus Dumbledore in the movie adaptation will forever be one of my most favourite quotes.

true story Isn’t it though? In an article which I wrote for The Nerd Daily ‘The Reality of Fiction‘, I spoke about how important fiction is to each and every one of us. The Reality of Fiction looks also at how the stories we read and watch on screen influence our reality and our lives. The do this because despite how many of them are filled with fantastical elements that do not exist in this world we live in… they’re real. To us, the stories we enjoy are real and therefore, as Dumbledore states is true.

not true.gif I know there are some of you reading this right now and reacting exactly like this to what I have written. That’s fine, you’re entitled to your opinion, you have your own beliefs and your own reality which is, most likely, this one.

My reality, however, will forever remain a mix of the world which I live in and those which I wish I could. What can I say, I’m a strong believer of fantasy being the best type of reality.

Movie Review: Avalon High

AH Movie
(Characters L>R: Jennifer, Marco, Allie, Mr. Moore, Will, Lance, Miles)

Avalon High is a Disney Channel Original Movie which was released in 2010. Directed by Stuart Gillard, the movie has a run time of 1hr 30 mins and is the movie adaptation of the novel of the same name written by Meg Cabot. This fantasy drama movie suitable for the entire family stars Britt Robertson as Allie Pennington, Gregg Sulkin as Will Wagner, Joey Pollari as Miles and many more talented actors and actresses. Being an adaption of the book, there are a few noticeable differences within the movie. However, the basis of the story remains the same with young Allie Pennington transferring to Avalon High only to discover that the legends surrounding King Arthur and his Knights may not be as fictional as she once believed.

It is, as described on the site:

 

So, as you can see, it really was the perfect site for me to come across. After that, all it took was sending a quick email to the editor to introduce myself and express my interest and I was soon a team member!
